Miye Yamashita

WATSONVILLE — Miye Yamashita died on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017. She was 99.

She enjoyed crocheting blankets and giving them away. She also looked forward to going to the JACL Senior Center every Thursday to meet with her friends to chat and play bingo. She will always be remembered for her yasashii (kind, caring, and generous) demeanor and for always thinking of others before herself.

She is survived by four sons, Kunio, Takeshi, Hidekazu, and Goro; two daughters, Shizu and Sumi; six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenji, who died in 2008; and her son, Masayuki, who died in 2014.  

Friends are invited to attend her memorial service at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2 at the Watsonville Buddhist Temple.

Arrangements have been entrusted in the care of the Carroll Family of Ave Maria Memorial Chapel, www.avemariamemorialchapel.com.
